Does it have AC or do the jawans have to cook in 50 C?

Arjun true to its name invincible. But in Mahabharata war Arjun is nothing without Krishnas help.

shiv, some times i just wonder how these russian weapon mafia keeps changing the discussion. DGMF comes out in press and says that soldiers are not supposed to be living in luxury and says no to AC in Arjun, on other side DRDO stands up to this challenge and comes out with hardened electronics. But at the same time the luxury point is not valid and T-90 has its AC fitted in next 1 year. Now we have a poster who comes out asking if Arjun has an AC.

Seriously, I think IA can do away with more than just 118 Arjun Mk II (2 regiments). Such a small number is really useless. Army can decide a role and a doctrine for Arjun Mk II and then order some more regiments… like atleast 354 (6 regiments). After achieving so many milestones (kudos to DRDO for not giving up on Arjun), now Army is left with just one excuse that it has already set it's ways with T-90 Bhishma. They don't want to change their doctrine now. So, why the hell bother ordering 118 Arjun-II either! That will be really… Read more »

I was looking up on the specs of this beast. If the figures are too be believed, it's 55 tons in weight. It's longer by almost a metre than its distant relative , Merkava, but it's lighter by about 10 tons. On top of it out has a mine plough, ERA as well as conventional armour.I think there is something that doesn't fit here. But irrespective of that, they seem to have done a good job on giving the turret the slopes it needs. modular panels keeps it easy to maintain. I think the only valid opponent to this tank… Read more »

A very simple & straight forward effort needs to be seriously made, in order to reduce weight of the 68 toms Arjun-MBT2 to around 50 tons; by replacing heavier RHA plates with Titanium nanometric alloy plates for a next Gen Kanchan armour design! If necessary DRDO-MoD, requires to tie-up with Japanese defense manufacturers and get nanometric alloys design technology…

No doubt The Arjun MK 2 is a great tank by global standards. But the main issue is the weight (68 ton is a lot). DRDO should put some serious efforts to bring down the weight while increasing the protection.

Unfortunately CVRDE Upgraded T-90-S-UPG will be far more effective than Arjun on modern day battlefields I feel! Need to redesign Arjun and keep total wt. well below 50 tonnes for it to be an effective MBT!

I now understand why IA does not want the Arjun MBT2. T-90-S upgraded by CVRDE using all the lessons learnt & Tech transfers from Arjun MBT2 project, is turning out to be a far-more potent and cost-effective solution for IA! ArjunMBT2 weighing in at almost 70-tons is no good as it cannot be deployed effectively and, costs too much to be maintained effectively on the field. Almost 70% of tank components are direct imports from foreign nations- who do not have any Indian partner to maintain or replace parts! Kanchan armour is also being used to beef up T-90's old… Read more »

I now understand why Army does not want or need Arjun-MBT2's! When the 1st batch of T-90s arrived from Russia, they were absolutely worthless with so many problems issues- no night fighting capability at all! Army then approached CVRDE, and CVRDE next did a FANTASTIC job of upgrading the T-90-S; using all the Tech's and lessons learnt, from Arjun MBT2 project. And enhanced this tank to being far-more deadlier than the Arjun itself! From MBT2 project, they used Kanchan2 armor-DMRL to improve T-90's protection in vital areas, Israeli Digital Data link fusion to UAV's, fighters & other tanks, used BEL… Read more »
